Rode VideoMic Pro overview

  • 1Description

The VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount & Windbuster Windshield Kit from B&H features a Rode VideoMic Pro supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone with integrated Rycote Lyre shockmount and an Auray WSW-VMP windbuster. It can be used to capture audio in outdoor environments for camcorders, DSLRs, portable recorders, and more.

The VideoMic Pro has been updated from earlier models with a larger condenser capsule (1/2") and provides broadcast-quality audio. The 1/8" stereo mini-jack connector outputs a mono signal to both left and right channels and delivers low self-noise of just 14 dB. Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, the filter, the level controls, and a selectable high-pass filter at 80 Hz.

The Auray WSW-VMP provides dual-layered wind protection and reduces wind noise up to 30 dB. It also protects the microphone from moisture and dirt. It has a simulated-fur outside and an acoustic-cloth lining inside. Furthermore, the kit provides and effective way to minimize wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in a light to moderate breeze.

  • Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount

    The VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount from Rode is a supercardioid condenser shotgun microphone that terminates in a 1/8" stereo mini-jack (dual mono), includes an integrated shockmount, and an integrated foam windscreen. It can be used to capture audio for camcorders, DSLR, and portable recorders as a source of primary and reference audio.

    The VideoMic Pro has been upgraded from earlier models with a 1/2" condenser capsule that provides broadcast-quality audio. Its 1/8" stereo mini-jack connector (outputting the mono signal to both left and right channels) delivers low self-noise of just 14 dB. A supercardioid polar pattern ensures that surrounding audio is minimized, and your recording is focused on the subject in front of the camera.

    In addition, the Rycote Lyre-based shockmount is built from a single piece of hard-wearing thermoplastic. It separates the VideoMic Pro capsule and electronics from its mount, providing isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. This suspension will never wear out, sag or snap.

    Easily accessible on the rear face of the microphone are the power, the filter, the level controls and a selectable high-pass filter at 80 Hz. The filter will prevent low-end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded. Furthermore, the -10 dB (or pad) is suitable when recording loud sound sources such as live music, motorsports, or interviews, where the subject is very close to the camera. There is a +20 dB level boost designed for use with DSLR cameras, so the user can reduce the camera's preamp level, effectively reducing the amount of noise generated by the camera's audio circuitry.

    The Rode VideoMic Pro uses a standard sized shoe-mount for on-camera use and features a 3/8" thread in the base of the mount for easy boom-pole mounting. The VideoMic Pro is battery powered and provides over 70-hours recording from a single 9V battery.

  • Auray WSW-VMP-R Windbuster for Rode VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount

    The Auray WSW Series Custom Windbusters provide dual-layered wind protection, substantially reducing unwanted broadband wind noise and vocal pops with minimal high frequency loss. The WSW-VMP-R Windbuster has been custom-made for the VideoMic Pro with the Rycote Lyre Shockmount and the VideoMic Pro Plus and is designed to be used over its existing foam windscreen. The simulated fur outer layer works in tandem with the acoustic cloth inner lining to protect the microphone element from air bursts without muffling the sound. The velvet back cover with locking drawstring offers protection to the microphone, as well as easy access to the controls.

    When used on the VideoMic Pro, the Windbuster is effective in minimizing wind noise and plosive sounds. It is most effective in light to moderate breeze conditions (4-17 mph), and users can generally expect a 30 dB to 40 dB reduction in wind noise with modest dampening of high frequencies. For most applications, the modest high frequency dampening is a worthwhile exchange for the substantial wind noise reduction. In addition to dual-layered wind protection, the WSW-VMP-R helps prevent moisture and dirt from damaging your microphone.

Rode VideoMic Pro reviews

VideoMic Pro with Rycote Lyre Shockmount & Windbuster Windshield Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough competition in small format shotguns For it's size, sound quality, and price... it's ok. Definitely useable to capture dialogue at close range, but it does not replace a full size shotgun mic for sound quality. The build quality is mediocre and it feels pretty cheap in your hands. I would like to see more compact shotgun mics enter the market and I am sure they will as everything becomes smaller, lighter, and more portable. For now this is probably the one to get. I realize this isn't an mkh416 or even in the same ballpark. I just think it could have been better; such as better side rejection, better build quality. Others have commented on the battery compartment which seems fine once you 1. read how to do it and 2. practice a few times. The included deadcat in this bundle is fine. I haven't compared it to others on this mic. It blocks a good bit of wind noise. It fits and is not too fiddly to put on and take off. The 1/8 (3.5mm) plug is a bit on the tight side in my a6500. Now other plugs feel loose in the a6500.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product!! Great product! I haven't figured it all out yet but am working on it. Sounds great, use it wth the SC4 into an SC6 to my iPhone and use the Rode Rec app for recording.Like I said, I haven't figured out all the ins and outs of it yet, but I think once I figure it out it'll be great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works extremely well in the field. I often find my self in tense situations involving law enforcement and this Mic is incredible, both in the quality of capture, and the range it can pick up. Would recommend to anybody who films in fast-paced, chaotic environments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! We use the lower level VideoMic in our office, but this upgraded version has been amazing! Having the ability to better control sound levels & the included windshield has been amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mic Use this for corporate speaking events, isolates the speaker nicely while also doing a decent job at shooting b-roll of crowds etc. Have used it for voice over as well.
